ABC Shows on DVR not actually recorded but show they are

Message 1 of 3

This keeps happening, but only on shows that I have scheduled to record off the ABC HD channel.  (All other shows on other channels are recording fine).  It is also sporadic, in that sometimes shows are recorded fine, but other times they are not.  The shows show up as recorded in my DVD list, but when I try to play them, there is 1 second of blank, then that is it.  The info for the show shows the time that supposedly it is recorded for, but it is .... empty - the best way I can describe it.  All other channels are recording fine - this only happens on ABC.  Any thoughts/help appreciated.

Same thing happening to me, in DC area, intermittently and recurring on HD network channels for months.

This is not our individual boxes. This has to do with the transmission between Verizon Fios and these networks' signals, according to a technician at the DC ABC affiliate WJLA.
